Sleigh Bells (Alexis Krauss and Derek E. Miller) have announced a new album, Texis, and shared its first single, “Locust Laced,” via a video for it. Texis is due out September 10 via Mom + Pop Music. Miller co-directed the video with Nina Ljeti and it features Sleigh Bells styled as a country band playing some sort of country and western TV show. It’s an interesting juxtaposition with the band’s more abrasive music. Watch it below, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art, as well as the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Texis is the follow-up to 2016’s full-length album Jessica Rabbit and 2017’s mini-album/EP Kid Kruschev.

“We stopped worrying about whether or not we’re in or out of our comfort zone, or if we were being repetitive or formulaic,” said Miller in a press release.

Miller adds: “The thing I’m most attracted to is the juxtaposition of happy and sad, melancholy and hope. A lot of this is about trying to hold on to a shred of optimism through sheer force of will, and I hope this music can give people some joyful energy and confidence.”

1. SWEET75
